think about it...
What about your training.
I bet you're enamoured with the bullshit mythical one hour of training, or even a lunatic aiming for more than an hour.
Get over it
In fact - be really tough, and limit yourself to only 30 minutes (start to end, activation/cool-down, the whole shebang)
Yup - toughen-up
Get everything done in less than 30 minutes.

I've just been reading a number of articles - about magic strategies for 'holiday-season' eating.
a.) don't let food touch your plate
b.) eat with your non-dominant hand
... they go on and on
BS - get over it!
Have fun, and just learn self-responsibility!
shifting the blame elsewhere, and thinking there's some funky magical 'thing'
Hey - if you have one-day gorging yourself crazy - enjoy it! then get onto knowing and acting on the potential ramifications.
Up your activities (with fun & vigor)
Be Juiced! Be in the Now, be realistic
Well, we're fully into December and the Holiday Season now - so tonnes of yummy food around.
I've been working on a fabulous list of amazing food (Superfoods) - to help you with your nutrition.
I did a 5-part Evaluation:
*ONE: ‘Food from the Land’ – It must be a whole, natural food, that hasn’t been highly-processed or contain any artificial ingredients
**TWO: The Food must be super-nutrient dense. ‘Nutrient-dense’ is the simple analysis of the number of nutrients in ratio to the number of calories. Ie. High nutrient density is when nutrients are high in relationship to low calories.
You get all your essential nutrients for the least number of calories. (Maximum bang for your buck!)
***THREE: They have to be widely available, ie. common ‘everyday’ foods, that you will be familiar with. (Some supersonic food from the Amazonian forests can sound great, but if the reality is you can’t get access to it – then it’s not a solution!
****FOUR: Plus are Affordable, so you can easily action it into your lifestyle, and not be a luxury treat. Solutions are consistent and constant actions! Be aware to season’s and proximity of the source to ensure the ‘price’ doesn’t get warped.
*****FIVE: And Taste Great. Hey, this gives with Principle x – ‘Use your Brain’ If you don’t enjoy it, you never going to do it forever.
